All This Intimacy By Rajiv Joseph
Dir: Douglas Clarke QSM
A comedy about friendship and lust and how the two don't mix.
Ty Greene is a normal guy with three very big problems. In an unprecedented (for him) run of promiscuity, Ty has managed to impregnate three women in the span of one week: His ex-girlfriend, his 40-something married next-door neighbour, and his 18 year-old student. In this edgy comedy Ty's problems illuminate every triumph and failure of his life, and as the women in his world converge and figure out what's happened, Ty realizes that his life is adrift, and that he only has a limited time to try to piece it back together.
The Thrill of Love by Amanda Whittington
Dir: Garry Thomas
Fame comes but not in the way she imagines.
The facts are not in dispute. On 11 April 1955, Ruth Ellis shot and murdered her lover. Ellis was found guilty and became the last woman to be hanged in Britain. But why was she so keen to admit her guilt, and so loth to offer any defence, even refusing to name – until too late – the person who gave her the loaded gun? Amanda (“Be My Baby”, “Amateur Girl”) Whittington's play starts with a siren image of Ellis in satin underwear looking like Marilyn Monroe. But like much in this work, the surface image is a mere deception.
